She mightn’t have made the Emmys last night, but that doesn’t mean Taylor Swift didn’t manage to make things awkward for her recent ex Tom Hiddleston.
Last night at the star studded event Tom impressed everyone by returning to his pre-Hiddleswift state of hotness, but unfortunately for the actor even his very dapper suit couldn’t stop the Internet from finding a link between him and his famous ex.
After presenting the award for Best Directing in a Limited Series to Susanne Bier for her work on The Night Manager, Tom was played off stage by another of Taylor’s former flames, John Mayer.

While the Bad Blood singer and American singer-songwriter only dated briefly in 2009, Twitter users could not ignore the show’s producers’ clever decision to move the camera from Tom to John as Mr Mayer strummed his guitar for the actor’s descent off stage.
One viewer wrote: “Emmy for directing a limited series goes to whoever directed the camera directly from Tom Hiddleston to John Mayer.”
While others suggested that the song John had been playing was called The Thrill Is Gone.

So was John Mayer playing the blues with the Emmys band (?!) immediately after Tom Hiddleston presented some kind of meta joke?

Tom Hiddleston presenting then showing John Mayer playing in the band? Calvin Harris probably up next on the 1s and 2s.
